Issue/Introduction

Can the location of the Workload Automation Desktop Client workspace be modified to point to an alternate location other than the default location? 

Environment

Release : 12.x

Component : CA WORKLOAD AUTOMATION DE (DSERIES) DESKTOP CLIENT

Resolution

You can change the location of the workspace folder by modifying the config file for the Desktop Client.

  1. Navigate to the configuration folder located below the Desktop Client software installation directory. Mine happens to be C:\CA\WA Desktop Client R12 SP2\. Yours may be different.
  2. Open the config.ini file for editing.
  3. Locate the line "[email protected]/workspace-CAWA"
  4. Duplicate this line and comment out the original.
  5. Modify the new line entry to reflect "osgi.instance.area.default=<your_location_of_choice>".
    Note: Make sure the location exists and it has appropriate permissions for your users..

    Example:
    #This configuration file was written by: org.eclipse.equinox.internal.frameworkadmin.equinox.EquinoxFwConfigFileParser
    #Thu Dec 19 13:25:34 CST 2019
    org.eclipse.update.reconcile=false
    eclipse.p2.profile=SDKProfile
    #[email protected]/workspace-CAWA     #Default Setting
    osgi.instance.area.default=c:/tmp/wade-workspace                   #New Setting
  6. When you launch the Desktop Client, the new workspace directory should be in effect. You can check the location that you specified for file creation.
